Buckling Analysis of Laminated Composite Plates by Using Various Higher-Order Shear Deformation Theories
- 94 Downloads
The buckling of simply supported laminated composite plates is studied using various higher-order shear deformation theories. A Navier-type analytical method is used to solve the governing differential equations. The critical buckling loads of simply supported laminated composite plates under a uniaxial buckling load are calculated. The present results are compared with available published results to verify the accuracy of the higher-order shear deformation theories considered.
